The Otay Mesa Chamber will be holding one last vaccination event –our encore edition– at TruckNet on Tuesday, June 15. The main goal is to administer second shots to more than 800 commercial drivers we were able to vaccinate for the first time on May 10 and May 11. UC San Diego Health will also be administering first shots (most likely Johnson & Johnson) so they will be fully vaccinated with the first dose. We learned it is very challenging for commercial drivers to access vaccines since they are driving their trucks and it is very difficult to park them in other locations. That challenge combined with the fact that non essential travel at our land ports is still restricted, means truck drivers can only cross the border when bringing a load.
No appointments are necessary for this vaccination event, which will be held from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm. TruckNet is located at 8490 Avenida de la Fuente, San Diego CA 92154. A very special thank you to the County of San Diego, UC San Diego Health and TruckNet for all their support.
